Latest News Adlens Reaches Semi-Finals of Edison Awards By Staff Wednesday, February 06, 2013 12:21 AM OXFORD, U.K.— Adlens, based here, announced that it has reached the semi-finals of the 2013 Edison Awards with its John Lennon eyeglass collection. Named after inventor and businessman Thomas Alva Edison, the Edison Awards is a program produced by the non-profit organization Edison Universe which globally recognizes and honors innovative new products, services and business leaders in order to create a positive impact in the world. The competition is based on four important criteria: Concept, Value, Delivery and Impact. The John Lennon Collection consists of variable focus eyewear that utilizes Adlens’ proprietary fluid-injection lens technology. Variable focus eyewear reduces time and costs associated with traditional lens laboratories, an advantage for developing countries. Through Adlens’ Buy One Give One program, for every pair of fluid-injection glasses purchased the company donates a pair to someone in the developing world. The competition winners will be announced during the 2013 Edison Awards event which takes place in Chicago on April 24 and 25, 2013.
